We in Melbourne are closely bonded to Israel – we are known to be one of the most Zionist communities in the world. We are a Zionist kehilla, which prides itself on its connection with Israel, linking smachot to the State of Israel, and standing solidly with Israel in good times and bad.

Israel Independence Day is celebrated annually, according to the Hebrew calendar, on 5 Iyar, the anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel.

 

The day preceding this celebration is Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day, during which the entire nation remembers its debt and expresses eternal gratitude to its sons and daughters who gave their lives for the achievement of the country’s independence and its continued existence. It is a day of collective and personal anguish mingled with awe and honour for the fallen.
